Critical Thinking Required


Read Richard’s current thoughts about transhumanism and related fringe topics here.

I find it necessary yet again to mention that my Cybernudism blog, like most blogs, is commentary. In this format I hope to engage in larger debates on the issues facing humanity now and in the future.

Frontier Channel, on the other hand, is a science and technology news site. The separation between and is my attempt to separate commentary from objective news reporting.

However, the selection of topics I choose to write about for Frontier Channel is itself commentary. Most of the articles I have written have to do with my obvious passions for planetary science, the Technological Singularity, transhumanism, radical life extension, the Internet, and the intersection of society with technology. I believe that these topics are important and therefore these are the topics I write about. By being both editor and writer for Frontier Channel, I present yet another obstacle to objective news reporting.

I work to present only the facts of a topic for Frontier Channel. I provide a list of direct links to the original source material and other information. I credit images, captions, and quotes correctly. In this way, I hope to be as objective as possible given the obstacles above.

Cybernudism is my subjective space for trying to place this news in a larger context via my own beliefs I hope readers always keep this in mind, here and elsewhere. Commentary is only a guide to new ideas and never an alternative to critical thinking or education.
